Release Overview

Release 2.0.0

Not yet released.

  • Auto Read Feature
    Our clients are often requesting an Auto Read Feature. texasWINthem shall read the pocket cards as well as the community cards from the online poker client on its own. A lot of people confirm that the handling via shortcuts is good and efficient. But reading cards automatically would be even better, of course.
    The Auto Read Feature is planned definitely.
  • Multi-Table Enabling
    Some of our clients play simultaneously on more than one table. Currently, they open one texasWINthem per table. Since the screen is always too small, we plan to implement multi-tabling on tabs.

Release 1.7.0

Not yet released.

  • Heads-Up Wizard
    The Heads-Up Wizard will suggest some reasonable actions, especially pre-flop. These will be based on the pocket cards, the position (Button or Big Blind), the opponent's action as well as (optionally) the current chip situation.

Release 1.6.0

  • Calculation of the Current Zone (M)
    With M we indicate the size of the (own) stack compared to the size of Small Blind, Big Blind, and Antes considering the number of opponents.
    This value is very important for the choice of the play-style. Depending on M there is the possibility to take risks or it's not good anymore to play conservatively or it's a must to play very aggressively.
  • More Flexible Odds vs. Pot Odds Calculation
    In earlier releases, all Outs were taken into account, when the profitability of the next move has been calculatet (i.e. the comparison of Odds and Pot Odds). Release 1.5.0 changes this behaviour: The number of relevant Outs can be defined freely.
    Let's make an example: In the screenshot below you can calculate the situation if you (legitimately) think, that you only win with the Tripple. You compare the Pot Odds with the Odds for only 2 Outs (the two still unknown 8).
  • Pot Odds Calculation
    In previous releases, the Pot Odds were only calculated if the comparison with the Odds made sense. I.e. on the Flop and the Turn.
    This restriction has been dropped and the Pot Odds can be calculated at any point in time.

Release 1.4.0

  • Scenarios for Pocket Card Evaluation
    The default scenario for the evaluation of the pocket cards was a poker table with 10 players.
    With this release there are 3 different scenarios. Of course, all of them can be edited as usual. The scenarios are a table with 10 people, a table with 6 people, and Heads Up.
    Especially Heads Up is interesting, because it is much better predictable than a full table.
  • Adaptation of Existing (10-Handed) Scenario
    Some pocket card ratings were adapted. E.g. Q9s and Q8s can be rated higher by default.
  • Optimized Handling in Option Dialogs
    Together with the necessary changes for the support of multiple scenarios, the general handling of the option dialogs was improved.
  • Startable from Read-Only Medium
    Up to release 1.2.3, texasWINthem was not startable from a read-only drive (as a CD or DVD). The reason is that a set of default parameters was written to the disk.
    This behaviour was changed with this release. But of course it is not possible to save any changes to a read-only disk.

  • Nice Up the GUI
    Up to version 1.0.0, development was focused mainly on the functionality. Therefore, the GUI was very functional and practical. But the program did not win a price for its prettiness... this has been changed with that release.
